This paper derives two processing methods for optimum SAR/GMTI (Ground Moving Target Indication). The first method, EDPCA (Extended Displaced Phase Center Antenna) extends the well-known DPCA (Displaced Phase Center Antenna) and ATI (Along-Track Interferometry) processing to three or more receive channels. The second method, ISTAP (Imaging Space Time Adaptive Processing), is based on coherent integration of the Post-Doppler STAP (Space Time Adaptive Processing) outputs to increase the target SNR (Signal-to-Noise Ratio).
